Natchitoches to host award-winning folk artist | Arts & Culture
American folk artist Andrew McKnight will perform in concert at the Sweet Cane Inn in Natchitoches starting a 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6.
The concert is free and open to the public.
The award-winning artist is most notably known for telling America's stories in song. The Boston Globes wrote, "With a voice reminiscent of Don McLean, McKnight traverses from old-time Appalachian tunes to contemporary folks and blues, all backed up by his dead-on guitar playing."
McKnight left his corporate environmental engineering career in 1996 to pursue an award-winning music career. His musical journey has traced over half a million miles of blues highways, and earned him a wealth of critical acclaim and enthusiastic fans for his captivating performances and five CD's.
He usually tours solo, but also performs frequently with founding Nitty Gritty Dirt Band member Les Thompson fronting their genre-bending quartet Beyond Borders.
His music can be heard on hundreds of broadcasts and internet radio programs around the world including many National Public Radio stations, XM/Sirius Satellite, and he's been a featured guest on the nationally syndicated Art of the Song and River City Folks shows.
